Likes

Famous quotes containing the word likes:

    I think of you more often than of anyone else in this part of the world. I’d have liked to have you for a sweetheart, or a wife, or my mother or my sister—anything that a woman can be to a man. The idea of you is a part of my mind; you influence my likes and dislikes, all my tastes, hundreds of times when I don’t realize it. You really are a part of me.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    “But there’s always been rich and poor, and that’s all there is to it. And us two won’t change it, either.”
    The carpenter calmly puffs away: “Only the ones that likes it ought to be poor. Let the others have a try at it first. I ain’t got no liking for it. A fellow gets tired of it after a while.”
    Alfred Döblin (1878–1957)

    ... to know what one knows is frightening to live what one lives is soothing and though everybody likes to be frightened what they really have to have is soothing ...
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
